A vibrant new voice in American poetry! In his debut book, The Colored Seasons, Léopold Figaro gives us an astonishingly innovative collection of verse. By turns lushly beautiful, startlingly erotic, genuinely wise, and frankly terrifying, these pieces combine a masterful control of image and line with a lyrical love of language. In them, Figaro somehow manages to interlace his Afro-Caribbean and Haitian-American heritage with a conception of the universe that is, at heart, very optimistic and therefore very American. If you have an interest in the future direction of contemporary writing, or if you simply love poetry in general, you owe it to yourself to give this potent collection a very close read indeed.

Leopold Figaro is a poet and lover of all things art. Aside from the inquisitive nature that abstract art tends to evoke, he also exposes the provocative, the bold, and the distorted. He hails from the creative town of Jacmel in Haiti and strives to include the Jacmelian flavor in everything he writes. When he’s not scrambling your mind with such abstract words, he spends his days scrambling after his toddler son.
